Toilet Repair and Replacement

Toilet Repair and Replacement

Another common call for plumbers is to repair a toilet that a spouse or handyman has recently ‘fixed’. Some homeowners are extremely handy and have no problem with maintenance tasks such as replacing the parts in the toilet tank.

However, often we have to make major repairs on a toilet after a homeowner or handyman has used the incorrect part or tool. There are even times when we have had to replace the entire toilet due to a cracked tank or bowl that was a result of a recent repair.

The best advice we can offer to help prevent these types of accidents is to follow all the directions that come with the new parts that have been purchased and follow the manufacturer’s recommendation for parts.

Our plumbing pros at My Georgia Plumber are on call to take care of your toilet or bidet repair and replacement.

Clogged Toilets

Many things can cause a clogged toilet:

  • Lack of sufficient water supply due to a worn flapper or fill valve.
  • Flushing items that are not flushable, such as diaper wipes, feminine products, paper towels etc…
  • A child may have even to flush a toy.

A plumber with the right tools and equipment can quickly solve this problem. However, if other fixtures in your home are also showing signs of being clogged, the problem may not be in your toilet. You may have a blocked main sewer line.
